TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida health officials are educating the public about HIV through a mobile art exhibit.

The Faces of HIV project recently stopped in Tallahassee and Panama City and will continue to travel the state. The exhibit depicts the lives of Florida residents living with HIV and AIDS through captivating portraits, video interviews, and journal writing.

The project examines the effects of stigmas, the personal relationships, and care issues associated with being HIV-positive. The state has seen a rise in HIV cases, particularly in South Florida.

State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong, whose future in that role is uncertain after a Senate committee has twice postponed his confirmation vote, toured the exhibit earlier this week.
